This increase in interest is expected needed here.

The figures bear out his assertion.
The Wolverines were ranked first by
UPI in the spring of 1977 and reached
the NCAA semifinals, yet that fall only
5300 tickets were sold, less than half of
Crisler Arena's capacity.
At other Big Ten schools, most
notably Ohio State and Indiana, student

half-season packages are offered, thus

THE TICKET PURCHASE
procedure at Michigan will be similar
to that used last year. Students must
pay for their tickets in person. Tickets
are $37.50 for students and $56 for
spouses (proof of marriage is

required). Ticket applicants must
provide a validated Michigan ID card
and a driver's license at the time of
payment.
Seating priority, as usual, will be
determined by the number of credit
hours earned at the University, and all
seat assignments within each priority
will be based on a random selection.-

may apply for tickets for an entire

on the lowest priority in the group.

DRIVES INTO 2nd DECADE:
Cager Wakefield an IMfixture

By DOUG NEARY
He's not getting older, he's getting
better.
And at 28 years of age, he's almost too
good to be better. His name is Chris
Wakefield, his game is basketball, and
for over ten years Wakefield has been a

fixture at the Intramural Sports
Building.,
Wakefield's IM obsession began in
1969, his freshman year at the Univer-
sity. Since that time, Wakefield has
played every inch on the IM courts a
thousand times on his way to becoming
a local legend of sorts.
The 1973 graduate set a single game
scoring record of 52 points in 1972, a
record that still stands.
The honorable-mention all-city guard
from Detroit Macek.enzie originally
planned to play one year of IM basket-
ball before trying out for the Michigan
varsity as a walk-on. But the large
number of guards on scholarship at the
time discouraged Wakefield from ever
trying out, a decision which continues
to haunt him after four guards were
kicked off the 1970-71 team for breaking
training rules.
Wakefield has always loved playing.
at the Old IM because of its
traditionally good competition. He
recalls that the I l used to be so
crowded withtbasketball enthusiasts
that games had to be restricted to half,
court, four-on-four, at a time before the
CCRB and the NCRB had been con-
structed and Waterman Gym (now
razed) was the only other place to play.
Wakefield has a user's pass which
gives him access to all the buildings
and programs of the recreational sports
department. Yet even now, Wakefield,

a teaching consultant for Ann Arbo
public schools, continues to prefer to*
play at the IM. He feels it stands above
other facilities as "the place to be for
basketball jocks. A true gym."
Wakefield said he feels the Michigan
intramural program is "one of the best
in the country" because of the way it
applies its sizable budget. The only im-
provement he said he would like to see
is an upgrading of the referee program,
and perhaps, the clarification of the
protest procedure.
The new Superstar Division, which
was designed for tougher competition,
will help the good players remain shar-
per and provide an even greater test of
their skills, Wakefield said. He also
hopes the new league will be "as suc-
cessful as last year's instant scheduling
was."
Anyone who has seen this IM diehard
play, knows Wakefield is definitely in a
Superstar Division of his own. "And,
yes," he adds with a pearly grin, "I'm
gonna' keep on playing." /'
GRIDDE PICKS
With the new campus fad gaining
momentum and sales of razors, after-
shave and alcohol spiraling, there are
rumors that Gridde Picks, always a
campus tradition, will fall by the
wayside. Well fear not. Gridde picking
does not require the removal of bodily
hair, or even clothing, and does not
promote the excessive consumption of
alcoholic beverages. It merely consists
of picking the winners in this week's li$t
of college games and getting, yo'
selections to the Daily office,
Maynard, by midnight tonight. Th.
most precise picker will receive a snall
bne-item pizza from Pizza Bob's at nTo
cost; not even a hair off your head.
